CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) — Police in Charlotte have arrested a suspect in the 2009 killings of a pregnant 15-year-old and her baby.
The Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department said Friday that new information from a community member led them to arrest 45-year-old Royce Anthony Mitchell.
Jail records show Mitchell faces two counts of first-degree murder and remained in custody Saturday. The records don’t list an attorney who could speak on his behalf.
Local media report 15-year-old Tiffany Rena Wright was at a bus stop when she was shot and killed Sept. 14, 2009.
Her baby was delivered at the scene but died at a hospital days later.
